About the book:

The "Popol Vuh" is the most important example of Maya literature to have survived the Spanish conquest and is one of the world's greatest creation stories, comparable to the beauty and power of Genesis. It describes the five creative attempts to form beings who could speak intelligently, remember their creators and offer them appropriate words of reverence. Eventually the Gods manage to form twins who defeat the lords of death and make it possible to populate the earth with humankind. Most previous translations have relied on Spanish versions, but this title uses the original K'iche'-Maya text as its basis.
